    You will need converters

    You can buy a processor (IIRC, Pioneer makes one, and so does JL) that turns your speaker signals into RCA signals. They might have 3-way X-over on these processors, I'm not sure. IIRC, they're about $80 bucks.
    Or you can go to a local audio shop and get a 'Hi-Low converter' which is a smaller version for about $20 bucks.

    Does it really make a difference in SQ between a Aftermarket HU and a Stock HU cause I thought the Rca's were just for a signal.

    it did for me. and its not because i thought the stock HU ****** its just that with the High low converter the subs didnt respond as fast/ didnt hit crisp or clean. sounded a little muddy. Its also pretty hard to fine tweak a stock HU like an aftermarket one.
